Ivan Toney’s return to Newcastle United has apparently being discussed, and it might be a sensational, high-profile deal.

After leaving St James’ Park in 2018, Toney has excelled at Peterborough before winning a transfer to Brentford in 2020.

With a then-record-breaking individual season in the Championship, he assisted the Bees in earning promotion, and he has excelled in the Premier League, scoring 20 goals last season.

The 27-year-old appears to be headed for a major move because his contract expires in 2025, and some of the Premier League’s top six teams have shown an interest in him.

According to a new report from Football Transfers, Newcastle is one of the few clubs who have actively started talks with the striker about a transfer, possibly for next summer, while Manchester United is considering a move for him during the winter transfer window.

Toney is practicing separately from the Brentford team and is currently serving a lengthy suspension from football for breaking gambling laws. His suspension is scheduled to finish in January.

Must Newcastle get Toney?
With Callum Wilson continuing to perform well off the bench and big-money addition Alexander Isak flourishing since his arrival last year, Newcastle’s current striker options are solid.

Wilson’s contract is up at the end of the current campaign, but it appears Newcastle has started talking about renewing it with the 31-year-old.

This might end up being an important consideration for Toney in any decision. There won’t be much need for Newcastle to attempt and recruit a striker that Brentford manager Thomas Frank valued at more than £100 million if Wilson continues with the team.

If Wilson leaves, Toney might be the best supplementary player to stand in for Isak, and the two athletes might even lead the line together.

Although it is unknown if Toney would be interested in returning to St James’ Park, the fact that Newcastle has begun talking about a transfer suggests that they may have received encouragement from Toney’s support group that he might be willing to do so.
